Degrees and Certifications:
BA English, St. Olaf College
This is my second year teaching at Deer Valley High School, and I'm thrilled to be here for a more "normal" year! I grew up in Minnesota and received a BA in English from St. Olaf College. After graduating, I traveled the world and worked as a book editor in London and Sydney. I spent the next 7 years in Vail, Colorado, teaching 4th grade, 5th grade, and 7th grade Language Arts. While in Colorado, I also worked as the Children's Book Manager & Buyer at an independent bookstore. I love recommending books to my students!
I live in Scottsdale with my husband and pup, and enjoy hiking, singing, playing the piano, reading, creative writing, traveling, and learning!
